Maradona Makes Shock Man Utd Claim

Despite Manchester United having chosen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as their permanent manager, Argentina legend Diego Maradona, who is currently in charge of a team in Mexico's second tier, has now insisted the Red Devils should rather appoint him.

The 58-year-old is the coach of Dorados in Mexico’s second division, but insisted he could help the Red Devils back to former glory.

“If Manchester (United) need a coach, I’m the man to do it,” he told FourFourTwo.

“I know they sell lots of shirts around the world, but they need to win trophies, too. I can do that for them.

“I played at Old Trafford (in the 1983/84 Cup Winners’ Cup quarter-final). What noise, like La Bombonera.”

Maradona also explained that he used to support United, before revealing why his allegiances have shifted to Manchester City lately.

“Manchester United used to be my favourite English team for so long,” he added.

“So many great players and a great team under Alex Ferguson. But now I have to say Man City.

“I know you shouldn’t change like that but it’s because of Kun (Aguero). We speak a lot and he plays in a very good team.”

Maradona’s only high-profile job so far has been with the Argentine national team, which he coached between 2008 and 2010, but left after they got knocked out 4-0 by Germany in the quarter-final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
